We are looking for a site supervisor to manage the construction of 5 dwellings in Pormpuraaw between May and October 2021. These dates may change depending on access into the community and the construction progress.

The successful candidate should be willing to live in Pormpuraaw in contractor accommodation for the duration of the project for ideally a 3 weeks on, 1 week off roster. However, this roster could be flexible and negotiable. The Project manager or another supervisor would takeover during your leave time and would likely overlap for a few days each side.

  • Assisting with general labour tasks as may be required, and depending on your skills (eg fencing, earthworks, landscaping, furniture assembly)
  • Purchasing food from the local store and accommodation facilities (more detail later)
  • Manage people and accommodation requirements for people coming and leaving site (ensure there are sufficient rooms available as staff level change)
  • Liaise with the local community representives from time to time.
  • Manage any local COVID restrictions/ requirements that may be in place

The site work hours are generally 6am to 5pm, 7 days per week, but may have downtime depending on construction activities. Accommodation is in a contractor camp with own room and ensuite, and shared kitchen and living facilities with up to 20 other contractors working in the town. You would be responsible for ensuring all contractors working on our project maintain the accommodation and respect the rules, as well as stocking food for our contractors from the local store.

Pormpuraaw is an aboriginal community and is strictly no alcohol, except for the sportsman club where limited alcohol may be consumed on-premises. Part of your role would be to ensure contractors are following this rule.

Wages can be negotiated depending on the roster you are willing to work to, and your level of skills and experience, starting from $1400 per week. The wage range is what is proposed by Indeed, but we can consider payment outside that range depending on your skills, experience and time on site.

Roster must be no less than 2 weeks on, but the longer you are able to stay on-site the better, and we can be flexible on the roster as needed. We will pay for flights between Pormpuraaw and Cairns and/ or pay for fuel and travel allowance if driving, as well as all accommodation and food while on- site.
